Chronic diseases may cause major limitations in patients' daily living due to acute or deterioration events, which can happen more or less frequently and, often, cannot be totally relieved, causing a worsening of patients' conditions. In the last years, a strong effort is being spent in the development of intelligent ICT applications for patients' telemonitoring, aimed at maximizing the quality of life of chronic patients by means of a regular collection of information about their status and actions in a long-stay setting. In this paper, a knowledge based decision support system is presented, which is aimed at aiding clinical professionals in managing chronic patients on a daily basis, by assessing their current status, helping face their worsening conditions, and preventing their exacerbation events.
